I was reading Eats Well With Others (a very good food blog) and I was stunned to see 60 comments on a recent polenta post. In fact, many of her recipes garnered 60+ comments. Part of the reason is that she usually mixes in an interesting back story within her recipe post. However, I visited a few other food blogs on her blogroll and they also had 50+ comments on many recipe posts. Crazy Asian Gal had 47 comments on a post about caramel popcorn. Moveable Feasts got 75 comments on a chicken recipe. Generally comments fall into 2 categories: 1 ) Yum, I love it too! or 2 ) I must try it!
I’m mentioning this because my favorite finance bloggers don’t seem to get that many comments, even on thought-provoking topics. Maybe I stumbled upon the more popular food blogs or perhaps people are just more passionate about food than finance?
